Summary

A sense of urgency pervades global environmentalism, and the degrowth movement is bursting into the mainstream. As climate catastrophe looms closer, people are eager to learn what degrowth is about, and whether we can save the planet by changing how we live. This book is an introduction to the movement.

 
As politicians and corporations obsess over growth objectives, the degrowth movement demands that we must slow down the economy by transforming our economies, our politics and our cultures to live within the Earth's limits.

 
This book navigates the practice and strategies of the movement, looking at its strengths and weaknesses. Covering horizontal democracy, local economies and the reduction of work, it shows us why degrowth is a compelling and realistic project.

    Patrick Lencioni’s The Ideal Team Player: How to Recognize and Cultivate The Three Essential Virtues posits that in order to succeed—especially in a work environment—one must be a team player. Business leaders must be able to identify and hire team players to secure the best possible advantage over their competitors and leverage all the benefits of teamwork. Ideal team players share three core virtues: They are hungry, humble, and smart. To illustrate the ideal team player model in practice, Lencioni offers the hypothetical example of Valley Builders, a construction firm in Napa. Using this extended hypothetical as referent, Lencioni illustrates the components of the ideal team and explains how to apply them.
     
    Valley Builders was founded some 30 years ago by Bob Shanley. On the advice of his doctor, Shanley is retiring, but at a critical juncture: the firm has just inked deals on its two biggest jobs to date...

  • How Wealth Rules the World - Saving Our Communities and Freedoms from the Dictatorship of Property - cover

    How Wealth Rules the World -...

    Ben G. Price

    Crackdowns on local democracy are accelerating, as corporate and state interests continue efforts to repress social movements. In this well-timed book, Ben Price presciently reveals structures of power and law that facilitate blatant corporate supremacy in the United States. Price uses his years of experience as a community organizer and a careful reading of history to show how a legal paradigm that facilitated slavery and the fossil fuel economy has endured and adapted over time – today barricading our communities and squelching dissent. 
     
    Many books have been written about wealth, power and politics in the United States. Most of them make intuitive sense. Wealthy people use their power to influence and control politics. But Ben Price's new book is often counterintuitive as he explores how wealth itself is imbued with power. He answers questions such as: 
     
    How is the American Legislative Exchange Council – a modern states' rights, free market capitalist group – the intellectual and political descendant of George Washington's Federalist Party? 
    How was the Fourteenth Amendment that emancipated African American slaves from their status as property used by a reactionary Supreme Court to grant legal “personhood” to private corporations? 
    How are cities seen under our legal doctrine as “public corporations,” devoid of real governing authority? 
     
    Further, Price identifies key counterrevolutions in U.S. history that squelched the transformative potential of the Civil War and American Revolution, and traces the roots of colonial and imperial systems of control. He links them to modern “free trade” agreements and other antidemocratic structures used to supersede democracy to this day. 
     
    For some, this will come as no surprise. For others, it will be a rude, though necessary, awakening. “The white man's municipalities are just reservations, like ours,” said a resident of Pine Ridge Reservation, who Price spoke with. "The difference is, we know we live on reservations. The white man doesn't.” 
     
    Crucially, Price shares insight into how social movements can plant seeds of a new legal system that makes the liberty, civil rights and dignity of humans and ecosystems its ultimate purpose. In fact, he introduces the reader to people who are doing just that.
